Car accidents can cause serious injuries

When a car accident occurs, the expense tied to property damage can be exorbitant. While that alone can be a pain to deal with, in some situations there are other issues that arise as well. Depending on the circumstances surrounding a crash individuals involved could suffer personal injuries as well. When the injuries are serious in nature they can lead to a long period of recovery, disability or even death.  While there are of course many different types of injuries that could result from a car accident those to the chest, neck, back and head are some of the most catastrophic.

Tips for staying safe driving in winter weather

In an earlier post we wrote about things that can be done to a vehicle to try to prepare it for winter weather. While making sure a car is working properly could help to prevent a car accident from occurring, the way in which a driver handles a car could have an impact as well.

Steps to take following a car accident

For anyone who drives a car, getting into a car accident is a possibility. Despite this reality, it is possible that many people are not sure what they need to do following such an incident. Since so many individuals in the state of Wisconsin rely upon these vehicles to get from one place to another, being aware of what to do should an accident occur, is a good idea.

Winter weather poses new challenges for driving

Whether we like it or not, winter appears to have arrived in Western Wisconsin. While lovers of outdoor winter activities may be cheering about this, other people are not as excited. There are multiple reasons for this including the road conditions that often accompany snow and cold temperatures. In addition to slowing down commutes, they can cause car accidents to occur. 

Use of booster seat could reduce crash injuries in children

Safety on Wisconsin's roads is the responsibility of everyone who is on them. This means that drivers should do everything in their power to keep themselves safe including driving at a safe speed, following traffic signals and keeping attention on the road. This also entails wearing a seat belt. Where children are concerned, proper child restraints should be used. For children of a certain age, weight and height, this is accomplished through the use of a booster seat.

Ways in which states might reduce car accidents

When it comes to motor vehicle accidents there are many things that individuals throughout the nation can do to try to reduce the number of crashes that occur. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has tips for ways in which state officials might act to keep roads safer.

Distracted driving may take many forms

Distracted driving has become a major problem on roads throughout the nation including those in the state of Wisconsin. The busier we all get the more multitasking people undertake. While this behavior may not be a big deal in some settings, when the person engaging in it is behind the wheel of a car, the outcome can be disastrous.

Though lovely, autumn can be dangerous for drivers

Many people in the state of Wisconsin enjoy this time of year. The cool temperatures and beautiful colors of the leaves as they change prompt many people to spend as much time out and about as possible. Despite these things, the fall season can be dangerous when it comes to automobile accidents. There are multiple reasons for this.

Will movement to keep car seats rear-facing longer catch on?

It is always upsetting to learn that someone has died in a motor vehicle accident. This is particularly true when it is a young child who is killed. To help keep the very young safe in case a car accident should occur, states throughout the nation, including Wisconsin, require that car seats be used until children reach a certain weight and height.
